Matthew has experience with a broad spectrum of retail and office real estate product types, including urban retail streets and districts, New Urbanism developments, mixed-use developments, traditional strip malls, and grocery-anchored community centers. From multi-level marketing campaigns for retail and office assets to detailed operational analyses and strategic repositioning of underperforming assets, Matthew provides professional services that enable landlords to realize the highest value for their office or retail properties. Prior to joining Colliers International, Matthew served for more than a decade as Senior Vice President at Jacksonville-based Prime Realty. There he oversaw combined sales and leasing transactions of more than $250 million over an aggregate 1.5 million square feet.

Matthew’s office portfolio at Prime encompassed some 330,000 square feet with a focus on urban-infill opportunities. There he worked with landlords to reposition and rebrand office assets for growth in occupancy rates and market value. He also helped tenants spanning multiple industries negotiate leases and prepare for acquisitions.

Likewise, in retail settings, Matthew was instrumental in repositioning markets and assets to garner higher rental rates. In Jacksonville’s 5 Points submarket, his work with new local and regional tenants realized a 167 percent rent increase over a five-year period. He also assisted in site selection on behalf of a diverse portfolio of regional- and national-name tenants.

Before joining Prime, Matthew served as Program Manager at Ponte Vedra Beach-based MarketingExperiments, the first internet-based marketing research lab. There, he and his team optimized marketing and sales processes on behalf of companies such as Royal Bank of Canada, Reuters, the New York Times and Schlumberger. Prior to that, he developed and implemented marketing strategies and digital tools to showcase residential properties for The Vestcor Companies.
